Equity in Health Technology Assessment

Published October 18, 2023

Key Messages

  • Equity-focused health technology assessment (HTA) can help ensure that health care interventions are evaluated and implemented fairly and that health systems are aware of and can take measures to redress inequities, where possible, to achieve the best health outcomes for everyone.
  • CADTH has made a commitment to apply a lens of equity and inclusiveness throughout the organization, to foster health systems that include diverse persons across Canada and that can better respond to their self-identified priorities and health needs.
